A heartwarming great book I really enjoyed this book! It's a story about love but also about strength and friendship. The author did a great job with developing the characters, especially Clara. This young teenage girl is sweet yet strong, and although at times insecure, I loved seeing her become more confident throughout the book. I recommend this book and I am looking forward to Book 2 in this series! Read more

Great read! What a great read! This authentic novel, will have you discover what friendship and relationships are really for. No matter what type of background, trauma and past one may have experienced or come from; love prevails. Set in a high school setting, this novel will have you feeling nostalgic and excited. The effect is intense and it pushes the boundaries of friendship and love. Although the future is always uncertain, Tania Trozzo, leaves readers with a sense of hope in the face of adversity.

I felt as if I was a part of the story. I couldn’t put the book down and am anxiously waiting for the next!! Definitely a MUST read!! Read more
